A foreboding new screenshot of the upcoming PlayStation 4 sci-fi horror title SOMA has landed on developer Frictional Games' blog. The ominous image shows a decrepit tunnel inhabited by a tentacled mutant – and he doesn't look too pleased that you've disturbed his lunch break. The picture was accompanied by a transcript of a "radio message" that we've reproduced below:
UNKNOWN: Look, this is the short version. — [CORRUPT DATA] — gone rogue. We're not sure what it’s up to, but it looks like it’s messing with the help. Are you hurt in any way, are you guys okay?
AMY: -- [CORRUPT DATA] — are turning on us! We need to get out of here.
UNKNOWN: Hold on, don't panic. Carl, tell Amy to calm down. You guys can’t have much left to do before evac.
CARL: Calm down, Amy.
AMY: You calm down!
An alarm is heard in UNKNOWN’s mic.
UNKNOWN: S***. I got to go. Stay the course, ok? Stay the --
Static outburst after which the signal is lost.
It appears that our flailing friend in the picture will not be the only shadowy figure terrorising players when the ghastly title finally scuttles in next year, with creative director Thomas Grip previously warning that you'll "encounter a number of strange creatures" throughout the game.
